Waste of time

This book is so dark. I didn't enjoy listening to it at all. Aleister Crowley has issues.

The last rule of the law is don’t discuss the rule of law

I am on a journey of spiritual learning and growth. I came across a group of Thelemites and was interested in learning more. While I found some very interesting and helpful items in this comparatively short scripture, there were also parts that I fundamentally disagree with on the surface. Be this as it may, I will withhold my final judgement until I can learn more of the deeper hidden meanings. As a stand-alone work I would not suggest this book. As a part of a larger story along with other learning or deeper dive I’m still hopeful that it will blossom like a late flower.

Nothing Resonated

I listened to it one time and there was nothing that actually got my attention even listening to it passively. I may listen once more but it could have been the way that it is read that makes the difference.

Fantasy Rubbish from a drug-addicted pervert

Crowley was nuts, plain and simple. Derivative drivel from literary amalgamations, the “Law” is a prime example of what a Cambridge education infused into an intelligent but mentally-diseased derelict produces: a sophisticated expression of perversity and infantile rebellion. I’m not saying you shouldn’t listen to the book; however, once you do, and you’re disappointed, then blame the Hawk-headed evil creature.
